Revolutionary Genders - Sibéal Annual Conference
Fri, 18 Nov 2016, 09:30 – Sat, 19 Nov 2016, 18:00 GMT
The 10th annual Sibéal Conference for postgraduate and early career researchers in feminism and gender studies.
The quest for equality always involves change, sometimes revolutionary change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
In the wake of a revolution what remains? What is left behind? What changes? And for whom? What compromises are made?
On the 100 year anniversary of the 1916 Rising equality is still a major issue. Gender recognition and rights could define our next 100 years. Has the gender revolution been written into the history books? How will gender be defined? How does this history manifest itself in culture, in history, in literature, in society, in law? What is the difference between revolution and sustainable transformation?
As the revolution continues we must both look back, but continue to move forward.
